On 4. February 2018, the Danish Regional Living Lab (RLL) ”Energialliancen Trekanten” had a perfect day doing a national event about Holistic sustainable energy planning and real life activities.
The RLL was strategically well placed at the opening of the “Skærbækværket”, a new green co2 neutral powerplant.. The plant was recently converted to biomass, which will ensure a 95% CO2 neutral district heating supply to the four municipalities included in the RLL (Middelfart, Kolding, Fredericia, Vejle).
During the day the RLL Triangle had structured discussions about energy and energy planning with many of the 2700 interested people that attended the event. Quizzes and a smart Grid map was used to structure and facilitate the discussions.
In general, knowledge is very diverse. Some participants were already in full understanding about necessity for Smart Grid planning, the need for fast sustainable transition, while others had a minor insight in the world of energy. However, the interest is not as much in energy as it is in sustainable energy planning. Therefore the “climate issue” is what actually is triggering peoples attention.
Many people enjoyed the rebuilt container, that hosted coffee-shop discussions.
